The secrets make a difference.

Hearing the background, insights, secrets and interruptions were the highlight of the tour. I wouldn’t have appreciated the stunning collection of art as much.

The tour operator was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Sharing insight and perspectives about not only the art but the personalities involved in making and acquiring the collection. My experience was truly enhanced by this tour!

Incredible tour guide

Our tour guide Federico was incredible. Not only was he super knowledgeable but he clearly had a passion for art, and specifically the Borghese, that was contagious. His tour was expertly crafted as he told a story of the Borghese and Bernini that made the art inside extremely accessible and interesting. We could not have asked for a better tour guide and we are so lucky we got him as our guide! The meeting location could have been a bit more clear, as the location listed on the ticket was at the back of the museum and the meeting point was at the front. But other than that this was the best tour guide we had during our two weeks in Italy!

Poor communication

Missed the tour because of road closures in Rome. Didn’t get a refund and I think that is fair enough. My issue is that I tried desperately to contact the tour guide through the provided contact information. Called, texted, had viator try to get in contact. No communication so had no way of getting information about not bothering spending time or money getting to the tour location or if could possibly join tour later. Later they claimed that we could join tour a hour after my first message to the tour as if that is helpful. Poor communication from the tour guide is the issue.

I was not expecting a guide who was so passionate about the works at the Borghese! Federico (sic?) had a breath and depth of knowledge that brought the artists and their works to life. I have a much greater understanding and appreciation for the Baroque sculptors. Thank you!

Frederico is a wonderful story teller. I highly recommend this tour!! I came for the Bernini sculptures and left with a greater appreciation of Baroque paintings.
